"The transformative gathering meditations; the melodic choral presentations; the deeply spiritual prayers; the infectiously melodic chants; the multilingual, multigenerational, and multicultural litanies; and the particularities of the confessional prayers seem to grasp the soul, the imagination and the heart. Every worship gathering would benefit from daily or weekly inclusion of this essential liturgical resource."

"This book is a blessing to the Body of Christ expressing the African cultural flavor of the Black Church! I am sharing this inspiring and insightful tool with everyone who participates in the worship planning process for our church.

African Americans, through our triumphant journey from slave ships and second-class citizenship to the present, have found power, freedom, and peace in worship and the word of God. Our unique experience with oppression has given birth to a liberating creativity in our worship expression that has been a vital part of empowering African Americans to overcome. In the pages of this book you will be blessed as you discover that same liberating creativity and overcoming spirit as you 'bless the Lord at all times.' "
—The Rev. Dr. Frederick Douglass Haynes III
Senior Pastor, Friendship-West Baptist Church
